Looking to keep your kids busy while they are at home? Below are 7 fun-filled indoor creative activities for everyday of the week!
1. Indoor Treasure Hunt
Turn your home into the great wilderness with hidden treasures for your kids to discover! Use a mix of pictures and clues and word scrambles for your kids’ indoor adventure. This will surely bring out their creative sides as they attempt to find the hidden treasure!
2. Child Friends Science Experiments
Using common household ingredients, classic science experiments like baking soda and vinegar volcano or dry ice bubbles teach kids valuable science lessons. You can make slime (a fun experiment in itself) and then use it for slime faces.
Scrapbooking is a great way to treasure times with your family. It’s also the perfect craft activity, bringing out the artist in everyone!
Growing plants is great fun, kids get to watch their work get bigger in front of their eyes. There are lots of plants that a young child can grow without too much trouble, from small trees to herbs and vegetables. If you don’t have a garden, then a window box or small pots are the answer. Try growing herbs like basil, parsley or cress – that way they can eat them once they’ve grown.
5. Bake and Decorate
Get creative in the kitchen with your own dessert bar by putting out toppings that kids can add to either a cupcake or ice cream sundaes.
6. Learn Origami
The ancient Japanese art of paper-folding easy to do and is one of the best things to do with kids. You can fold a sheet of paper into pretty much anything, as long as you’ve got a pattern – and making paper animals is one of the best ways to entertain your kids on a rainy afternoon. Origami-instructions.com is a great place to start.
7. Build a Fort
Use items you have in your house to create a fort, you can use large cardboard boxes, or sheets and furniture.
This can be a scary time for families. However, we can make it an opportunity to connect, play, make art, and be creative. Let’s make it as fun and creative as we can for both our kids and us!
